Imagine a quirky TV host commandeering a residential elevator at a luxury condo/hotel and proceeding to host the show from the open cabin. Residents and guests gather outside the elevator and become the studio audience. The host presents comedy bits, man-on-the-street interviews and live variety acts from the open elevator. The frenetic host wanders away from the elevator, to obscure parts of the building, where he partakes in off-beat, colourful encounters. 

Early Reviews from Media Legends 

"This is not the first time Ieden has pushed the envelope. But I have to say his new elevator concept is wildly creative and it should be celebrated for its originality" - Dini Petty 

"The Elevator Show is the work of a visionary Producer and a host with remarkable range" - Mark Breslin 

"Canadian Innovation does it again. Who would have thought of a talk/variety show from an Elevator" - Valerie Pringle 

I always love interviewing fashion designer Kim Smiley.  She is admired the country over, for her amazing ability to fuse her innovative jewellery lines with her deep commitment to humanity and philanthropic causes.  Kim is a wonderfully thoughtful woman who uses her success to give back to the community and the world at large. 

When I dreamt up the idea for The Elevator show, I always imagined me doing spontaneous "house calls" to Jewish residents. So it was a hoot to drop into the home of Freema Pellman (on the 20th floor), to wish her a Happy 92nd birthday. This Episode also features another instalment of "Meet the Team."  

I was thrilled to welcome Aaron Weiss to the show. Intergenerational Trauma is something that is seldom spoken about, yet it has emotionally and psychologically  ravaged the Jewish diaspora.  I was equally thrilled to drop into United Bakers, one of the legendary Jewish restaurants in the city and all of Canada. 

The Season Premiere of The Elevator Show combined three of my favourite things: Bagels, Magic and TV Legends.  It was such a thrill to have Canadian TV legend, Dini Petty, on my first show. In the 90's, Dini Petty was quite literally Canada's Oprah Winfrey.
